How much are you eating?
Trying to heal a leaky gut and do the autoimmune protocol.
Doing PB. Have also erased:
Legumes, dairy, nuts, seeds.
Considering erasing FODMAPS and fruits as well.
Last month my only food sources has been Rib eye, liver, bacon, lettuce, cucumber, banana, olive oil and some sea salt and carrots. Thats it, nothing else at all.
Just got back some vitamin defeciancy results (test taken just a couple days into the diet so its not because of it). Folic acid (B9) being a major one.
My question is:
What would you add to my daily food list if you could choose freely? (No spices and shit, im starving on this PB. I need calories and nutrition. Dont care about taste)
Something thats not against the autoimmune protocol or messing with a leaky gut is the "only" demand. I was thinking brocolli then google told me it was a FODMAP..
Any ideas would be extremely extremely loved!

How much are you eating?
Current interests - Starting Strength (reading it very slowly)
3000 cals now per days since i discovered that ribeye has a lot more calories than sirloin and that streaky bacon is pretty packed as well. So weight is finally stabilized.
there are different kinds of lettuces; aragula, mesclun, etc.
Different things to put on top. sliced avocado, shredded zucchini, jicama, and olives.
roast any kind of meat [ckn, lamb or pork chops, another beef cut] with just garlic powder [ I think the garlic powder is OK]
True, i will try different kind of lettuces. But it feels like they dont have much nutrition anyway.
Avacado and garlic is FODMAP if im not mistaken. So they are out. Im drinking olive oil. Avoid canned olives because of the addatives/preservatives. Maybe taking it too far?
Will write down zucchini and jicama to my possible food list (only two so far ) and look them up later to see if they are OK.
Stress (i.e., not meeting energy requirements) requires a "higher functioning" of the catabolic adaptive hormones.
These hormones cannibalize muscle, but also the thymus gland, which can be considered "immunity central."
A diet containing adequate sugar, saturated fats, calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, and protein (gelatin would probably be best) may be a good dietary strategy for supporting energy production and the health of the thymus.

Danny: why should i care about the thymus or why did you recommend it?
For a leaky gut, be sure to take a good probiotic with every meal and eat lots of prebiotics, lots. Reduce fiber and sugar as much as realistically possible.
Leaky gut takes a long time to cure.
Bone broth. What about coconut products?
